Vita Coco Coconut Water with Peach & Mango Healthy Drink
Recently, local stores are packed with Vita Coco and I thought it must be good. So I grabbed a Peach and Mango flavor to try. On the label it says “Imported from Brazil” and it’s 100% pure coconut water. Even though it’s all natural, but the drink is not certified organic yet. The story behind Vita Coco was two friends chatting with couple ladies who were from Brazil one night in Soho New York and asked them what they missed most. The ladies said “agua de coco.” Couple years later, Vita Coco is in your local supermarket. Now, I’m not sure what the original intention was by talking to those ladies, but they got themselves a business.
Upon peeling off the aluminum cover, you can smell a strong mango scent coming out from the aluminum bottle and you can’t really smell any coconut or peach aroma. The color of the drink is very cloudy and thick. It looks like a pineapple juice drink. After first few sips, you can tell the most dominate taste is obviously the coconut flavor and with the addition of not so convincing mango taste. As for the peach, it must have slipped it away or forgot to add it because the taste does not exist. However, this drink is very refreshing, delicious and not sweet at all. It feels like you are drinking right out of the real thing and it naturally rehydrate better than water with additional benefits. Also, there’s no aftertaste at all.
What can you get from this healthy drink? Well, it hydrates naturally with five electrolytes: Potassium, Sodium, Magnesium, Calcium and Phosphorous. “These electrolytes work to keep the body cool, help boost poor circulation, replenish your body’s fluids after exercising, and aid in the detoxification process while boosting your immune system.” The coconut water is from young green Brazilian coconuts and they are fat free. The other two ingredients are Mango puree and Peach puree. They are all 100% natural. It is recommended that you should take it with you if you are going to jogging, running or intense exercise.
I love this healthy beverage because of the taste and the benefits that comes with it. It’s a good alternative for other drinks that contains high sugar. It would be better if it’s packaged with plastic bottle because you don’t need to worry if you drop it on the concrete floor and you can take it with you to every where you go. Vita Coco on the Go!
